“Couples getaway in Chicago”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The staff at the Talbott were very friendly from the time we arrived until we departed. Nice touch with the electronic do no disturb/please clean room system inside the hotel room door. Turn down service with chocolates always a nice touch and we were asked daily if there was anything we needed in the room. Location was at the north end of the Magnificent Mile and walking to places and restaurants was not far at all. Although we didn't catch the trolley from this location as we were already at the south end when we decided to do it, it is just around the corner from the hotel at Stop 11. Giordano's famous deep dish pizza and the Water Tower mall are right around the corner.

We just returned from a flawless stay at The Talbott. A family member booked 3 rooms for our group, and warned that she went for the more cost sensitive option when choosing hotels. We were shocked that this was the "cheaper" hotel. The rooms were Huge for compared to other Chicago hotels! Even has a walk in closet. The bed was very comfortable. I had such a hard time getting out of bed each morning because I was in such a deep, wonderful, comfortable sleep.

They had an Apple drive and keyboard with internet/DVR on the large flat screen and free WiFi. The toiletries were Molton Brown, which is always one of my favorites. My boyfriend was happy with the large towels.

The restaurant/bar connecting to the lobby was decent. They even gave complimentary deviled eggs both evenings in the bar. Customer service is a top priority here.

The staff are so genuine and kind. But they are not over the top in your face, and allow you to go about your business without being bothered if that's what you want. Every employee we encountered gave a real smile and was more than happy to help with anything. This is one of those places that make you wish you would not have been so generous with your previous top ratings because The Talbott really is the best of the best and deserves to be recognized.

Never disappointed! The location, the rooms, even the breakfasts are terrific. Our room is always nice sized, clean, plush bedding. Love the cozy lobby with fireplace in the winter time, and the bar is fun. Especially love sitting outside watching the world go by when the weather is nice.

Room Tip: It's definitely a boutique hotel - so small lobby, quiet hallways.

Delightful boutique hotel just a few blocks from Rush St. and Water Tower/Magnificent Mile. Such a treat with luxurious bed linens and elegant furnishings. Rooms are large for Chicago standards.The mini mac and dvr are a unique surprise amenity when at a hotel. We've stayed here several times and I just don't feel like I'm at a hotel. Instead, it feels more like you're a guest at an elegant home. Booking thru the website, we received breakfast credits for the Little Market Brasserie. We enjoyed a full breakfast there both mornings. The location, ambiance and luxury make this hotel a real gem.

Room Tip: We were on the 11th floor, next to the elevator. Didn't have any problems with noise.

The staff are all amazing-they are polite, friendly, helpful and great fun, yet always professional and efficient. Our room was large, luxurious and comfortable. We had 2 nights here and ate in the restaurant both evenings. The food was delicious especially the home made bread with honey butter fresh from the oven. Breakfast was good too. The location is handy for Magnificent Mile, Navy Pier and John Hancock Center.

We spent three days at the Talbott Hotel in Chicago and from start to finish, we were very impressed with their service, clean rooms, and overall helpfulness. The location is superb and right in the middle of everything. We arrived late morning and were put in a room right away.

When our family goes to Chicago again this summer and fall, we will definitely book the Talbott Hotel.

This hotel provides service not seen very often. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else on a stay in Chicago.

I have stayed at over twenty 4 star hotels in Chicago and this is almost top of the list. Service is top notch and the housekeeping spot on. The room layout and facilities were great including Apple TV. Free internet is always good to see.

The connecting restaurant and bar are good but I was not blown away by the breakfast.

But here is the top tip. A few minutes walk away (100 E Walton Street) is the Belgian Bakery. This is the place to have the best pastries, cakes and bread (all made on the premises including croissants). Having visited Chicago for over 10 years this is my favourite find. The owners are lovely people and deserve the credit and support they are getting.
